I’ve said before in the past but it goes to saying again that indie cinema and most notably indie action cinema has certainly been filling the void left open by Hollywood who has shelved most of their films due to the pandemic. If it wasn’t for the smaller guys, we would have had no new films to talk about this past year.
With that we have news on another exciting action project as City On Fire via Asian Film Strike has brought word that action star Scott Adkins is teaming up with Shooter and The 2nd’s Ryan Phillippe for a new action film called One Shot. The movie will be helmed by James Nunn who also directed Adkins in the blistering British thriller Eliminators which also featured Stu Bennett.
To top it off, there is also a teaser poster making the rounds which looks pretty cool even though it has Adkins’ image which was used on the teaser key art for Seized.
Those who follow me know that I’m a fan of the one shot action sequence or oner when it’s done right so I’m intrigued by this one to say the least. There’s little to no room for error when doing a one shot sequence but with the level of talent involved, I expect great things from this one.
One Shot is being produced by Ben Jacques (Accident Man) and (Final Score) and production is said to begin on March 9th with a release set for next year.
Phillippe really has been making a name for himself in recent years and teaming him up with Adkins makes for one high-octane sounding shot of adrenaline. I’ve always championed for Adkins to headline a Special Ops role more often and leading an elite team of SEALS definitely is right in my wheel house. There’s nothing like firepower and fisticuffs combined in a military actioner so sign me up ASAP for this one.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more on Adkins, Phillippe and One Shot as we are your destination for everything action!!!!
